  1. Gram aka Dwanny you were the most selfless and loving person. I will miss you with all of my being! Your home has now just become a empty shell of a house without you in it! You molded me into the woman I am today. You were my rock. I admired your strength and independence overcoming many obstacles along life’s journey! Gramma I love you so much. You were ALWAYS big about our family reunions and how important they were for you. I can’t even imagine the reunion you must have had with all of your loved ones who passed before you especially your one and only Roy! You were our family staple! Rest easy and rejoice in heaven with your creator. I ❤️ you
